ME. Though looking at LSN, it seems that most people who got rejected today had pretty low numbers, though there are a few outliers.


I was a high lsat splitter with a mediocre GPA (but good enough for other T10), so no real surprise at B. I know at least one other person so far said the same.

I think the people getting rejected were UR long before 1/11 (I'm 1/11 too)

EDIT: I stand corrected.

UR 1/11.. Status changed to 1/27 "A decision has been made".

Not surprised.



Whoa so soon. When did you submit? Did you think your numbers were competitive?

I think those that haven't gotten rejection e-mails yet are safe for today. I got mine at 2:16PM PST...half an hour ago. I doubt they're still sending out e-mails?

Veri, now that someone who went UR on the same date I did got rejected, I'm starting to realize how you feel. :mrgreen:
(FWIW this is the only school that I believe I have very little shot at that I will be sad about if I get dinged)

10/22 UR with no sign of life. I bet they lost our apps and are too embarrassed to admit it.

I'm at the same date, and I think there were a few others kicking around before this latest wave. Haven't seen anyone earlier in a while.
